Abstract:
We studied the characteristics of strains isolated from neonates with group B streptococci sepsis and meningitis, before and after the introduction of antibiotic prophylaxis in The Netherlands. In 1999, 1 year after this introduction the serotype and genotype distribution and the susceptibility patterns of the GBS strains had not changed. Penicillins remain drugs of first choice to prevent and treat neonatal GBS disease.
